following through

thank you all for your encouraging
and great suggestions
for passing the time between now and christmas!

i might actually break down
and read the twilight series!

almost a half dozen people have suggested
that i read it while i am down and out!

we'll see.

i went to the bookstore yesterday
and stocked up!

what i can find at the library,
i plan to return.
otherwise, i am set!

you will be glad to know
that i asked for help yesterday!

i am hoping to cook a bunch of food
and freeze it this weekend.

but after my big food shopping spree yesterday,
i was totally wiped out.
so, i asked my neighbor
if i could borrow her girls to unload my car.

it was weird . . .

just sitting on the couch
while a 9 year old lugged in my bags.

she made sure to sigh with every load . . .

in true 4th grader style!
it was pretty amusing!

this weekend, herb is taking a motorcycle course

so that he can be legal when driving his new (bigger)scooter.
so, i am a bachelorette all weekend.

i hope to:

* pick up the house a little bit (especially the art space)

* buy a few new shirts and a pair of pants * check out library books
* write
* make some art

* cook meals to freeze

that should be MORE than enough
to keep me busy.

and since it is 9:30 am
and i am still in my jammies
surfing the internet,
you can see i have not made a very fast go at it!

time to get moving!

thanks again for all of the love!


Edited To Add:
i just finished surfing the denver public library's online goodness,
only to find that they have three of my books available
and the others are available at nearby branches.
i have placed holds on the ones that are not at my branch
and they will email me when they arrive
at the library in my neighborhood!
i love love love the public library system!!!
man, if this is socialism,
then we've got nothing to worried about
when it comes to nationalized healthcare!

omigosh, cara, while i do love inter-library loan, i'm not sure i'm ready for my kidney to go through bureaucracy. LOL

ironically, i am reading marx today.

i'll be blogging about some of the more interesting ideas i'm reading about in regard to the sociology of capitalism.

have a fun weekend, you little pinko. ;)
